Polar

Black and white. Dual forces that do not fight each other, but complement each other. Where there is light, there is also shadow. The paintings in this series were painted with only two shades. They captivate with an incredible dynamic. Power. Variety. The shades are an expression of the emotional nuances of my soul world.

Fearlessly, the inner is carried to the outside. The white Yang cannot exist without the black Yin. The passion with which the two forces repel each other again and again – and ultimately attract each other nevertheless – is omnipresent in the paintings. This art series manifests the artist’s most ardent desires and needs. The recipient is carried away by the energetic and dynamic color gradient. He dives into the emotional maelstrom of life and is inspired by the black and white color world. “Polar” brings light into the dark. This art series shows you all your facets and acts as a mirror of yourself.

Golden Lights

Goetz von Berlichingen is supposed to have said, “every light has its shadow.” As an artist, you take this premise for granted – after all, it came from Goethe’s feather. Then you begin to question it. You explore your inner self and try to discern the antonyms that define your existence. Where is the light in my life? Where is the shadow? In this art series, one deals with the eternal interplay of contrasts. Artistically, the beautiful, bright, golden sides of our existence are illuminated. The compositional focus is on the inherent spiritual light that shines radiantly to the outside and can warm the hearts of all. Nonetheless, within this colorful examination of the omnipresent opposing forces of life, essential significance is also accorded to the shadowy moments that give our lives a contrasting depth. “Golden Lights” reflects the interwoven play of light and shadow of our own being.

Human

Welcome! A word that covers much more than you might think at first glance. A world view that can be characterized by a positive basic attitude and a kind, decent behavior towards others that respects the dignity of human beings. Inspired by his grandmother’s story, which she shares in varying degrees with many millions of people worldwide, Schwien created an art series consisting of five highly political works whose powerful and expressive content advocates an open, warm-hearted, diverse and philanthropic society. Judgment-free and enlightened opinions are meant to emerge, which the viewer may express with courage and justice in their hearts without fear of negative consequences. Multilayered, several key works of the artist were superimposed and combined into a collage that not only speaks out for a humane society, but also clearly positions itself against racism and discrimination. Here’s to all people having the right to live in a world where everyone is welcome!

Then you begin to question it. You explore your inner self and try to discern the antonyms that define your existence. Where is the light in my life? Where is the shadow? Within the art series “Light & Shadow” Schwien deals with the eternal interplay of contrasts. Artistically, the beautiful as well as the less beautiful sides of our daily activities are illuminated. These artworks reflect the interwoven play of light and shadow of our own being.

Painted Poetry

Two hearts beating in synchrony,
Two hearts in my chest.
Letting the art flow in its sleep,
So pure and unconscious.
Roaring and sizzling, giving themselves over to passion,
Really feeling, so close to love,
Art is invigorating,
Striving for something higher,
From within so clear seen.
The truth drawn,
Captured in the core,
A questioning reason accompanies this,
The pain it fades,
The tears dry up,
Surrender to love,
Poured into paint
Eternally locked
In the artwork of life.

Mélodie Magique

It is rich and deep sounds that fill the opera hall with life at night. It is high tones and bright colors that make a symphony immortal. “Mélodie Magique” is a unique musical vibrational image of emotions that manages to transform the auditory perception of the recipient into a visual experience. This series can be understood as a cross-genre stroke of genius. The classical masterpieces of great composers such as Mozart, Beethoven or Verdi have influenced the genesis of “Mélodie Magique” as much as the artist’s most profound experiences and encounters. Not only the positive fair-weather clouds are depicted, which one can gaze at through rose-colored glasses. The flawed nature of one’s own existence is also reflected. How did Édith Piaf sing? Non, je ne regrette rien!
